623 // November 30, 2009 At the top of the trailhead of Mayflower Gulch, my two boys are dwarfed by the mountains behind them. Advertisements


Bear Spotted

28Oct09

600 // October 28, 2009 Rather, my hugely-pawed-bear-like puppy. If you didn’t hear, “The Big Snowstorm” was topic on all news channels here in Denver. Nonetheless, it wasn’t bitterly cold — just very heavy, wet snow. Staying away from driving the car anywhere, I’ve been working from home with Cubbie since Tuesday. He really lightens […]


587 // October 11, 2009 While up at Keystone this weekend, we took a hike alongside the Snake River. Mr. Cub jumped in after a few sticks, but what I cannot get over is how blue the water was….


Huron Peak I

12Jul09

562 // July 12, 2009 To continue on the story of our hike, we started our Friday night camping out near the trailhead of Huron Peak. Dave found a camping spot by the Banker Mine (near 10,500ft). Early that next morning, we packed up and headed up. View of Huron Peak from below the summit. […]


Portie Party

31May09

528 // May 31, 2009 We met up with some other Portuguese Water Dog owners who are in the north Denver/Boulder area tonight. It was held at the Boulder Reservoir, organized by Cubbie’s sister’s mom. It was fun to see them romp around – here are a few pictures from the event. Cubbie and sister […]


470 // March 22, 2009 We went on the first hike of the season this morning, Mt. Morrison. It was researched that this would be a 2,000 vertical climb over 1.5 miles – but it felt a lot longer than that. I’m beat and will have more pictures to show you – this is at […]


459 // March 09, 2009 I can’t believe how much our puppy has grown. Yes, for those that don’t already know, Cubbie (our Portuguese Water Dog) has turned one years old today. It’s funny to look back and think about all the planning we did in order to prepare for a dog. Watching him grow […]


Cub on the Run

25Jan09

426 // January 25, 2009 I wish I can show you this image blown up to true size. Actually I can show you a little bit larger version – keep in mind the photo isn’t a panoramic, it has been cropped. Cubbie loves the snow and I think if he could talk human, he’d ask […]


402 // December 27, 2008 In an effort to tire out the puppies so they’ll sleep while we can relax in the mountains, we brought them to some deep snow to run amok. I’m talking knee length! Aside from snow and ice in the paws and on the beards, we got some very tired puppies. […]


Nose and Hair

15Dec08

392 // December 15, 2008 Some more test shots, this time with a Sigma Aspherical Macro lens. This macro isn’t even at 100%, but I thought it was the closest I wanted to get without losing some interesting features. Cubbie’s incredibly interesting nose, right? Inspecting Cubbie for any split ends 🙂


Snow

14Dec08

391 // December 14, 2008 We got a sizable amount of snow in the mountains yesterday, at least 4″-6″. Got up to ski for the first time this season on my new equipment (and bum ankle), so I didn’t last long. But man the new boots feel great and I’m so excited that my sister […]


374 // November 23, 2008 …I’d abandoned you, right? No, how could all three of my readers think such a thing 🙂 Actually I’ve been really busy with late nights, work and play. Wednesday I was able to trot downtown to a trade show my company was taking part in. I was able to see […]


Frisbee

25Sep08

329 // September 25, 2008 I took these shots of Cubbie while attempting to teach him how to catch a Frisbee in his mouth. He’s getting the hang of it — but it keeps bonking him in the nose or going over his body. He makes the effort of jumping, but hasn’t mouthed it quite […]


Cub on Film

16Sep08

320 // September 16, 2008 Took shots of Mr. Cub with the 35mm — they came out excellent. The lighting, color and focus were pretty spot on for most the roll. Seems like a natural in front of the camera, don’t you think? 🙂
